    0.5mg dutasteride daily
    10mg oral minoxidil at night
    5% topical minoxidil at night with light dermarolling
    Needling every 7 days at 2.5mm
    various supplements

    I just added the topical minoxidil last month or thereabouts hoping it would give a boost of regrowth on my crown. The oral minoxidil seems to have helped diffuse thinning on the top of my head a little but done nothing for my crown.

    Yeah, that's a strong regimen.

    If that won't do anything get a hair transplant.

    Not as extreme as some peoples, bridgeburns regimen comes to mind. I will stick with this a while longer though and see what happens. No bad side effects on my current regime but if i go the tranny route im bound to get gyno etc transplant is also an option.

    Is tranny regimen even viable? The side effects must be horrendous, it's not worth it imo.

    If you are really willing to go that far then just get a hair system or get a transplant if you're loss isn't that bad.

    My hair loss is not bad enough to warrant a wig, i can't think of anything worse. I can still hide my balding with dry hair and some combing, there is just a stubborn almost slick bald part of my crown that refuses to fill in.

    Get a transplant then, easy fix or wait it out with microneedling/minoxidil.

    Flaking/Peeling question for you guys... do you find you flake consistently across your entire scalp? Or does it tend to be in particular areas?

    Day 4 after my last session and the skin is flaking now... though primarily on my right side (which is the more receded side too, both temple & crown).

    I find that weird ... as I think I do a very consistent job in pressure/coverage/intensity across the scalp now after ~7 sessions or so... you'd figure it'd be flaking/peeling all over?

    Yes he has! This is what he said:
    I barely even flake. And I press, man... I really do.
    Weird indeed.

    It's definitely something to consider but transplants are expensive, i would probably need between 1200 and 1500 grafts, thats if they would even do it since my crown is diffused except for one part. Im thinking about taking 20mg minoxidil, 10 in the morning 10 at night, see if that helps.

    Hmm.. interesting. I'd say both my temples consistently flake afterwards for sure. I go a fair bit past my (current) hairline since they've receded so much. I've just been paying attention though now to the rest of the scalp - and it seems like it is mostly mostly/primarily the right side.

    I don't know about your financial situation but if you go to one of the best (imo) asmed, I think it's still 2.5 euro/graft. So if you only need 1500, that's not such a big amount now.

    You ought to wait for a year before doing anything more drastic. You might want to even decrease your intake of minoxidil because 10 mg is potentially damaging. I had a racing heart with 5 mg/day.

    im slowly regrowing all my hair and its been only 3months of microneedling every 2-4 weeks.

    microneedling+scalp massages without anything else is working for me because i catched my hairloss early,

    My crown is filling in at the slowest rate but all the front of my head and my hairline is most likely going to be completely recovered at some point. no shed, only thicker hairs and extremely small new hairs sroupting and becoming thicker and thicker from the root with time.

    I'm getting gains and density in the reverse pattern i lost my hair, ( I lost my crown first )

    . ( early diffuse thinner / 1 year of hairloss, father and brother completely bald ) . I will post all my pictures in july for the 6 month timeline.

    I recommend adding minoxidil if the person if too bald or want faster results.

    @WMQ - Weird. Don't understand it, but it is somewhat interesting.
